Coaching Supervision

At The Coaching Academy, we believe that being a first class coach doesn't stop after gaining your life coaching qualification. This means that it is vital for you as a coach that you are able to access professional supervision to develop your ongoing confidence and maintain professional standards.

This is why we are working alongside Coach, Trainer and Supervisor Pam Lidford to provide and offer you coaching supervision.

Supervision sessions are offered either in small groups or on a 121 basis.

What is supervision and who is it for?

Supervision is for coaches who are qualified or nearly qualified and are being paid for their coaching. It offers a safe and supportive space where you can explore and develop who you are and how you coach. It supports you to grow as a coach and gives you the opportunity to reflect and expand on your skills, allowing your to gain a supportive space to reflect, energise and review your coaching practice.

“Who you are is how you coach”

Supervision is 100% about you and how you work as a coach. In each session, you have the opportunity to stop, think, reflect and grow, in a safe, non-judgemental and nurturing space around how you work with clients in sessions. You can also ensure you are using best practice and working within the ethical boundaries of the coaching industry.

In supervision, you are able to discuss your clients, in the form of case studies, to gain a deeper understanding of the client coach relationship (full confidentiality is practiced) in order to discover more about who you are when you are coaching and what personal and professional work needs to be considered enabling you to be the best version of yourself when working with your clients.

Here's a few examples you may bring to supervision:

Unlock your blind spots

• You found a session or client challenging

• You've got some personal challenges that are impacting on your ability to coach

• You feel judgemental at times

A safe space to reflect

• You didn't know how to handle a difficult situation that the client brought to coaching

• You found yourself almost slipping into counselling mode

• You find yourself trying to rescue your client

Learn to grow and gain insights

• You found yourself feeling emotional about a topic the client talked about

• You realised you weren't listening at level 5

• You notice that mentally you sometimes make the session be about you rather than 100% about your client

Work Ethically and Professionally

• You didn't know what questions to ask a client

• You're having boundary issues and aren't sure why

• You're not sure you like or believe in your client

“We all bring who we are to our sessions. This includes our beliefs, values, experiences, disappointments, successes, failures and judgements”.

Why do I need Coaching Supervision?

Just because we have reached a level of competency in coaching and have a qualification, doesn't mean the learning is over. In fact, when we gain our qualification, it's just begun.

Through our partnership with Pam Lidford we offer both small group and 1:1 supervision sessions. Our small group supervision sessions are offered monthly via zoom.

All the above and more, can be brought to your supervisory session in order for you to gently explore what's going on, what could have been done differently in a session, as well as what you're doing well in your coaching.

Supervision offers a safe and supportive relationship where together, using different angles and lenses, it is possible to enquire into who you are when you coach. It offers you an opportunity to take a leisurely exploration of any topic you bring to your session, which will allow you to learn, grow and gain insights.
